Carcinoma of the stomach.A 63-year old man with a three-month history of anorexia and weight loss. The contrast study shows malignant infiltration of the antrum, with partial obstruction.
At operation, the tumour was seen to be involving the whole of the
anterior aspect of the stomach, up to the mid-body. The tumour is pale white and there is a loss of the normal vascular markings of the
serosa. This photograph shows the inferior aspect of the antrum, which is infiltrated with tumour. Immediately below is the transverse colon, also infiltrated with tumour. The colon was narrowed at this point and a colocolostomy was performed. In addition, the patient underwent a gastrojejunostomy.
